10112009

so a great weekend. I love the fall. Regrettably the red sox lost today, yet affirming my distaste for the angels...sorry marie:) Anyway, everyone is doing pretty good. I decided to start my new resolution to start cooking this weekend. I bought a recipe book to my favorite pizza place in Boston....figs. I successfully have made pizza for the family 4 times this weekend. I am a pro now,:). We took our nanny Erin out to a fine dinner at the Salish.....was delish.

What else.....I converted Chloe's crib finally to a toddler bed. It's one of those stokke oval cribs that converts to a bed. I spent like two hours trying to figure it out. I am not sure I did it right but it seems stable:) For the first time ever I woke up to Chloe starring in my face. I guess she has just been waiting for the chance to get out of her room by herself. Maybe I need to get those special child lock things on the exterior doors? She is smart, and obedient enough to not touch them I think.

Safiya, is saying many two to three word sentences now. It's been awhile since I have mentioned it but she eats anything. I made fig jam and proscuito pizza twice, and she and I ate almost all of it. Chloe was like "ewwww I'll have mac and cheese please".

What else, Carol has been very tired today, sleeping almost 5 hours during the day. It reminds me of quite awhile ago. The last week and a half she has spent almost the entire days, on her prosthetics; I think it takes alot of energy. So she has been napping a bit more than normal....hopefully just another phase, as she adjusts to that.

I haven't really mentioned it before on purpose...but we bought a house in June. We have spent the last 6 months architecting it. I have been trying to make it very user friendly for Carol. Its an old 50's rambler, near where the girls will go to school....about 2 houses down. It's all one level, flat and smooth, perfect for Carol. We have been finalizing plans on it the last week....which after spending alot of time on it, we aren't going to change much, just really adding a bathroom. It's great....we love the place, just wish we would have moved in sooner. We will be moving soon enough, maybe 2-3 months. Thanks everyone

I think the fig pizza sounds great--you need to post the recipe for that one.

Congratulations on the new home, and finding a rambler here in Enumclaw. We are on the lookout for one as stairs are getting harder for me to manage.

Your children sound precious.

You probablly don't remember me but I helped organize the auction last year for Carol. I work at Kibler and can't wait to see your girls (in a few years of course) It's nice to see that your family is doing well.
